Ohio State defensive lineman cited for solicitation; to appear in court

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State officials say defensive lineman Adolphus Washington has been cited by police for solicitation and is due in court Dec. 17.

Buckeyes spokesman Jerry Emig said Columbus police cited Washington Wednesday night with a first-degree misdemeanor.

Emig says coach Urban Meyer will discipline Washington once he gets back in town next week from a recruiting trip.

Washington issued an apology Thursday through the university to his team, family and friends. He says he's disappointed in himself and will learn from his mistake.

Washington is a senior who has played in 12 games this season after starting in 14 games last season.
